The Backstory

My passion for cars started when I was about two. My dad had a 69 GT Velose Bertone design Alfa Romeo 1750 that he used to take to the local track down the road (Laguna Seca) and every once in a while I got to go watch! That’s me in my red racing shoes (apparently holding a toothbrush)

My passion grew, and as you might expect from any kid growing up in the 80’s I soon became the owner a sweet Dodge Viper GTS poster and a velcro Trapper Keeper with a picture of a lamborghini countach on it. I didn’t even mind playing dolls with my sister because it meant I got to play with her pink C4 Barbie corvette.

Fast forward to 2001 when I was able to save up enough cash to get my first “fun” car while in college. I didn’t care if it was 10 years old with 122k miles on it, I was dead set on this 300zx Twin Turbo. Working my way through college I ended up getting a second job at JWT (a nissan performance shop) and quickly found myself in the back of the shop porting and polishing turbo housings, drilling and tapping fuel rails on the CNC, and grinding away at air intakes on the laithe. Every once in a while I would get to break up the monotony and hook a car up to the dyno or get a ride in the 500hp sentra. Fast forward another 14 years and I’ve since started a company, locked down a fiancee and surrounded myself with great friends here in San Diego (a number of which happen to have some pretty fun cars). I might be missing a few things but that’s basically the important stuff.
